Too Much Wine?

Innovative Wine Cellar Designs Lives Up to its Name

Innovative Wine Cellar Designs lives up to its name, as its high standards for quality and attention to detail have been unsurpassed since 2002.

“We were one of the first companies in the country to move from traditional wood wine cellars to a more contemporary look, and we continue to develop new products along those lines,” owner Sandy Horowitz says.

With a background in the closet industry, Sandy tapped into the wine cellar business in its infancy.

“I contacted some of the architects, interior designers and custom home builders that I had developed relationships with while at California Closets. Custom wine cellars were a new concept, but they were willing to take a chance with me, and we started adding them into some of the homes they were designing and building.”

“The most popular looks in wine cellars out West are sleek enclosures of glass with the racking made of metal, glass, acrylic, aluminum and stainless steel cable. The newest look is what we refer to as ‘label forward,’ where the bottles are displayed horizontally so the label can be easily read rather than the front-to-back storage that was previously the only option,” Sandy says.

Finding the perfect bottle easily and efficiently was an issue Sandy solved with the new design elements, and he is currently working with manufacturers in Europe in changing the look of wine cellars to further create custom spaces for clients, emphasizing convenience and luxury.

Some other structural decisions include reclaimed wine barrel racking, brick flooring, herringbone wood ceilings and space for wood cases, large-format bottles and wine glasses.

Innovative Wine Cellar Designs has always been a leader in wine cellar concepts and continues to bring elegance and functional allure to each cellar they design. For more information, visit
